Attention Ark. Filmmakers: Don't f*** with The Jack

Posted By on Wed, Apr 25, 2012 at 4:52 PM

Arkansas director Eric England, whose Arkansas-filmed retro-slasher flick "Madison County" will be out on DVD early next month, recently blocked a fan on Facebook. Said fan, who straightfacedly refers to himself as "The Jack," has now posted a response video (seen above) in which, among other things, he admits that he was looking forward to seeing "Madison County" so much that he went ahead and torrented it (AKA: ripped it off illegally) online. NOTE: NSFW due to language and tearing-sheetmetal voice ("DIRECTOR! PRODUCER!")

BONUS: The Jack has now posted an even more unintentionally hilarious video calling for a boycott of the film, in which he contends: "the director is mean! He's a jerk! He has no compassion to his fans! His name is Eric England, and he is a very bad director, because he does not care for his fans! Nor does he care about his reputation in the film industry, which I will stinglehandedly tarnish, because I can do that!"

    I'm kind of a nut on vampire films. For one thing, none of them — from "Nosferatu" to "Twilight" — are really about bloodsucking. They're always about something else: xenophobia, fear of having your metaphorical, jingoistic bloodlines polluted by a menacing foreign Other, hangups about sex, guilt about living so well in the West while countless millions in the Third World get paid pennies an hour to make Nike shoes and cute clothes for The Gap (drink up, you vampire you).
